Razer Blade features improved specs starting today

Razer has updated is 14-inch gaming laptop to feature a better GPU, CPU, and memory starting as low as $1,999.99.


The Razer Blade is getting a bit of a refresh today as Razer is now packing its 14-inch gaming notebook with the latest processors from Intel and NVIDIA, more memory and a best-in-class QHD+ display.

The updated Razer Blade now features the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M (3GB HDDR5 VRAM) powered by its next-gen NVIDIA Maxell architecture, an Intel Core i7-4720HQ 2.6GHz / 3.6GHz quad-core processor, 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3L memory, and SSD options of up to 512GB of storage. The Razer Blade also includes a 14-inch IGZO QHD+ display with a 3200 x 1800 resolution, LED backlight, and capacitive multi-touch.

Additional specs include three USB 3.0 SuperSpeed ports, HDMI 1.4a, a compact 150W power adapter, a built-in 70Wh rechargeable li-ion polymer battery. 7.1 Codec support, and Intel Wirelss-AC 7260HMW, which supports 802.11a/b/g/n/ac & Bluetooth 4.0.

The new Razer Blade starts at $1,999.99 for the Full HD model with 256GB of storage and will be available in February, while the QHD+ model starts at $2,199.99 with 128GB of storage, although 256GB and 512GB options are available. The QHD+ model is available for purchase in the U.S. and Canada starting today on Razerzone.com, with an expected rollout to Microsoft Stores on February 16.

I was able to review the Razer Blade Pro back in 2013 and I was very impressed with it, although it was quite a hefty machine to play my games on. Now that the Razer Blade has these updated specs, it might be one of the best 14-inch gaming laptops currently available on the market, although I'll wait and see just how well it stacks up for myself.
